Policies and Fees

Our Frame

The therapeutic frame is an important and integral aspect of the way we will hold our work together. The frame establishes a space wherein we are both supported to do the work you have come here to do. Listed here are some important ways we set and build our frame together, keeping us each resourced and invested in your therapy. 

Fee: My fee is $200 dollars per 50-Minute session. I offer some sliding scale options which, if you are in need, we can discuss in the 20-Minute info call. I am happy to make referrals to sliding scale clinics in the area if my fee is out of your range. 

Insurance: I do not take insurance at this time and am therefore an out of network provider. I can provide you with a superbill that you may submit to your insurance provider for possible partial reimbursement. I encourage you reach out to your insurance provider for information on their policies.

Office Policies: It is important for the continuity of therapy that you come to all sessions. I do my best to offer a consistent, reliable meeting time for us at the same time and day each week. Since your appointment time is reserved exclusively for you, my cancellation policy is one week. In other words, if you cancel within one week of the appointment time you will be charged for the full fee of your session. If you are able to reschedule a session within the same week you will not be charged. Reschedules can be made within 24 hours of your session time. This will depend on my availability to reschedule with you and if I am not able you will be liable for the cost. 

Notice of Privacy Practices and Confidentiality Limitations: Information disclosed in therapy is considered strictly confidential and will not be released to any third party without your written authorization, except where required or permitted by law. Exceptions to confidentiality include, but are not limited to, reporting child, elder, and dependent adult abuse, when a patient makes a serious threat of violence towards a reasonably identifiable victim, or when a patient is dangerous to themself or the person or property of another.

Teletherapy/Telehealth: I do offer video and phone sessions. These platforms are fully secure and HIPAA-Compliant, I additionally conduct all sessions from a confidential space. I encourage you to find a private and quiet space as well. 

Verify My License: If you would like to verify my license, you may do so here. My license number is LMFT147210

File a Complaint: If you believe there is a serious ethical or legal violation on my part or on the part of any therapist, including sexual conduct between therapist and patient, you may file a complaint here.
